When designing your home, one of the big questions you’ll have to tackle is whether open plan living, separate rooms or a combination of the two is best for you. Each different approach has its own advantages and will help establish the feel of your home. We take a look at the different ways open plan or a more closed floor plan can suit your needs…
Our homes and where we live has a huge impact on our lives – after all, they’re the spaces in which we spend so much of our time. Whether you’re dreaming of more space, or want to make a lifestyle change, here are 4 signs you’re ready to move to your new home:
1. You’ve outgrown your current home
Has your family grown, but your number of bedrooms has stayed the same? Perhaps you’re getting tired of waiting for the bathroom in the morning? Maybe you’ve lived in your current home for a while and no longer have the room for everything you want and need. If you find yourself struggling to fit everyone and everything into the space you have, it could be time to look at upsizing so you can spread out and live comfortably under one roof.
2. Change of lifestyle
If you’ve had enough of the hustle and bustle of the city or want more outdoor space to enjoy – maybe a lifestyle change is for you. Plenty of people dream about moving to the countryside as their lives and priorities change. It could be as simple as wanting a safe, healthy environment for the family or maybe the kids have moved out and you are looking for a smaller home in an idyllic location. Whatever the reason if you find yourself longing for a different lifestyle, it might be time for a change of home.
